This past Saturday our team went to Indianapolis for CAGE Match! We had to be at our team’s workshop at 5:30 in the morning and didn’t get home until 10 at night. It was quite a big day! Our team participated in 7 Qualification Matches, 3 Quarter-Final Matches, 3 Semi-Final Matches, and 2 Final Matches. We ended up winning two awards; we won the “Drive it Like You Stole it” award as well as the second place award! The drive team on Saturday was John as the driver, Hannah as the operator, Mike as the drive coach, and Asher as the human player. Before the game started, several of the team members went to each team asking them to answer a survey about what their team’s robot is best at and where they prefer being on the field. Anthony and Kaylynn scouted the other teams. Jessica and Ashley spent the day taking pictures. Kaylee and Ashley spent some time showing around a VIP guest at the event and explaining to her and her grand-children how FIRST robotics works. At the end of the day when we all got back home we were all exhausted, but had a really fun time at this event!
